Last Sunday June 17th I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a polo match at Kokkedal Slot. Kokkedal Slot was the inspiration for Baltazar’s castle in my novel ‘Nordic Nights.’ This was the first time I had visited in real life and it lived up to my expectations! What a lovely place, next time I will surely have lunch upon the terrace.
Be easy on me…No makeup just sunscreen
Gown: Asos Petite (here)
The gown is lovely but from a distance it makes me look frumpy due to the ruffles hitting my waist. It’s fine for headshots but not for full body shots. I need far more waist definition for full body shots. I’m searching for a gown by August, so this is very important. Back to the drawing board!

The ultimate power couple…the ultimate couple in fashion…Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl. Now I know, and you know, that many of these photos are staged (especially the ‘candid’ instagram photos) as their body language is always that of a doting couple in the first blush of love. And many people will dismiss this ‘idealization’ of love as fake and materialistic. But I have another take…
Seeing positive…and visually beautiful…depictions of love is very inspiring. Not to mention the discipline, hard work, and teamwork it takes Johannes and Olivia to create these photos. They work really well together to be able to create this ‘allusion of perfection.’ A happy couple creates their own little ‘world,’ their own ‘culture’ unique to their relationship…and these images are Johannes and Olivia’s creation and for that I salute them!
At the end of the day, these pictures took Practice and as a result they are timeless.
Now the question is…*raises hands in steeple position as she gets a devilishly-thoughty look on her face* how do I…the Christine….get my boyfriend to agree to be a catalog model with me? Hmmm….Que The Maniacal Laugh!!!
Olivia + Johannes Photos = Filed Under #RelationshipGoals!!!
One last comment…it’s amazing how many different ‘poses’ these two manage to create. That’s why I created this post…to have a reference list of different ways to stand with my significant other when a camera is pointed in my direction.
Shorts and Top: H&M
To save money this summer, I’ve decided that everything in my everyday wardrobe will have a nautical theme. That means I only need one pair of shoes…these navy espadrilles. This saves time and money and ensures that I always look put together. Now I admit that these shorts are a bit ‘short’, but this is a more casual outfit for around the house.
